You might as well just use another app altogether if you aren’t planning to pay. This app cuts a very obnoxious balance of offering nag prompts every 10 seconds, such that you can’t even get a feel for the app before deciding to purchase upgrades. And the upgrades are massively overpriced. All this data is free and much more easily searched online through a simple website. Saved from a one-star because there is some value, but you can’t even get basic info about a tower without copy and pasting into other resources.
Use this a lot - & it is pretty accurate
Nothing changes after you purchase the app. Even if you "retrieve purchase"
Very confusing - This app will nickel and dime you into oblivion. Apple should do a better job of policing their apps.
Ask to use location, then shows towers 50 miles away. Pan the map to my location, which is pinned correctly. It does not show many of the towers near me, not even the one 2 blocks away.
It’s really nice to be able to see where different network’s cell towers are, but the app is excessively pushy about offering in-app purchases. You get offered while moving the map around, there’s a section that lists the upgrades in the menu, there’s even an upgrades section just a bit farther down in the menu, that also contains all the upgrades! What’s worse is that you need to check the FAQ to see which upgrades only need to be purchased once, and which ones are only active for the current session. It’s far to easy to blow a dollar on an update that you don’t stay in the app long enough to use. Plus… The FAQ says that ads have been disabled for everyone, but the app will still happily accept payment to remove them. This needs to change! The fact that the app doesn’t refresh automatically, that there’s no compass running, that I can’t see a picture of the tower, etc is enough to tell me that I haven’t purchased the relevant upgrades, without being constantly told it’s an option. If I wasn’t nagged about these and if they lasted longer, I might be more willing to pay for them. As it is, the app is in extreme danger of driving users away by acting too desperate for money.
No information on map. Charges for each check.
Every few seconds it tries to sell you more and more. Also did not have any info on a cell tower near me. Showed a tower on the front door of a hotel. No tower. Useless and greedy app.
Purchase disguised as one on the many pop up’s every app does. Your purchasing before you know it
